9/11: The Pentagon’s B-Movie
The events that took place in the United States on September 11, 2001 were real and they were extremely violent. As David Griffin has recently shown in detail, they also had catastrophic real-life consequences for both the United States and the world.

given the overall vision, the need for funds, resources and international coordination over a period of years, it is obvious that there had been a producer;
given the numerous roles played in this event (for example, by the “hijackers”), there were undoubtedly actors............
